WHAT IS LIBRARYBOX? (plural: LibraryBoxen) http://librarybox.us/whatis.php

WHOLE LOTTA HISTORY Open source to open content http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/

HOW IT WORKS Wireless router as server, USB stick, local connection (no internet)

PRIVACY Secure, anonymous, no logging image: ~Brenda~Starr~ on Flickr

DIGITAL DIVIDE works where there is no internet, where there is filtering, where there is censorship. No DRM

HOWTO PUT STUFF ON IT USB or FTP, super-easy

CUSTOMISATION Welcome text and Menu - simple in a text editor (just save the original somewhere!)

LET’S CONNECT & PLAY It’s easy to connect to LibraryBox from your phone, tablet or laptop. Step 1: Connect to the WiFi signal “LibraryBox – Free Content!” Step 2: Launch a browser Step 3: Load any webpage Step 4: Select I2C2 from the menu at the top of the landing page Step 5: Enjoy!

I LIKETO POST-IT, POST-IT because ‘90s references are in no way dated

SEND ME STUFF The LibraryBox will be here for the whole conference and popping up at other events – if you have a favourite open resource or Creative Commons licensed photo/video/book/document, I want to know.
